If you thought Research In Motion could catch anymore flack, think again. A class action lawsuit, filed in Quebec Superior Court by the Consumer Law Group, seeks compensation for all of RIM’s customers that “were unable to access their email, BlackBerry Messenger service (BBM), and/or Internet for the period of October 11 to 14, 2011.”
According to the filing, the lead complainant is an avid BlackBerry user that could not communicate with friends and family. Through the formula of the lawsuit, he would make only $1.25 in compensation. While it might not seem like a lot, if others jump on, it could end up costing RIM a pretty penny. Given that the past outage was RIM’s largest in history, we could see this class action lawsuit begin to snowball. Would you be apart of it? Read the full complaint here.
